ST. FRANCISVILLE, La. (AP) — A structure people climb over on an obstacle course has collapsed in Louisiana, injuring several racers.

West Feliciana Parish Sheriff Austin Daniel tells The Advocate ( that a group of people were climbing a wooden structure called the "Diesel Dome" when it collapsed during a Warrior Dash event. He says he believes the worst injury was a broken femur and head injury, but nothing life threatening.

Warrior Dash races are held in cities around the country and feature several obstacles, including ponds, mud and large objects that participants must climb and crawl over.

Warrior Dash spokeswoman Lauren King says organizers are evaluating the situation and they're thoughts are with the injured participants and their families.
